Out of the Blue

I think our move was too much for my desk chair, as a piston exploded out of the bottom of the Aeron chair, thankfully not causing any damage to the floor. I tried a while back to replace the pneumatic cylinder this came from, but found it impossible to remove. It still seems fairly permanently stuck into the chair bottom, but at some point I'll try to force it out in a do-or-die effort. Either it will come out or the chair will be destroyed. I hope it will actually come free, as the rest of the chair remains in pretty good condition after serving loyally for 20 years, and it appeals to me to get it back in working order.

Google has some stuff.. http://rainydaymagazine.com/wp/2018/12/30/diy-herman-millers-aeron-chair-repair/

My wife and I have Steelcase Leap chairs, and the cylinder on mine has been a constant issue. Mostly because I fidget a lot and chairs don’t seem well designed for that. Should probably just replace it with a bean bag or something equally low tech.
